3. Vegan Ham -- If Easter just doesn't feel like a celebration without a slice of ham, or "ham," this vegan version uses seitan to emulate the quintessential pork product. Yeah, the Vegan in the Sun recipe looks eerily similar to the real thing (and it even incorporates cloves and pineapple!) but rest assured, it's safe for your vegetarian belly.
4. Vegetarian Holiday Quiche -- Quiche is a perfect holiday meal. It goes great with sides, or stands on its own. This version is adapted from a tasty recipe by Robin at Recipes.com.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat a skillet on medium and melt the butter; toss in the onion and saute until it becomes translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, spinach, feta and half of the cheddar, stirring constantly. Season with pepper. Pour the mixture into the pie crust. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs and milk. Pour into pie crust, covering the spinach and mushroom mixture. Bake the quiche for 15 minutes. Take out of oven and top with the rest of the cheese and bake for another 35 to 40 minutes until cheese browns and the egg sets. Let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
